Tht,3 New Bovatty Law.
' A general bnunty law has passed both
branches of the legislature; 'but in some
non•eseeutialidetailti the two Houses did
not agree, and•a committee of conference
has reconciled the 'differences. The re
fort of :the committee will certainly be
agreed to in both branches, if it has not
already been done, and the various dis
grids of the State will very properly be
brought under 'a uniform law regulating
the assessment of taxes and the payment
~ of bounties: • -
. '.. The now bill provides that the school
directors, or other local authorities of any
township; ward or borough shall be an
• thorized . to pay a bounty not exceeding
four hundred dollars to all men enlisted'
under the pending call, or.any future,call,
and the tax for.the seine shall be levied
in accordance with the provisions of the
act of last yearoviththir, exception—that
all persons subject to draft shall pay; in
addition to their tax on property, - a per
Capita tax of twenty dollars, and all aliens
between - the ages of tweniy and forty-five
pay the same. The provisions of the old
law prohibiting the collection of inure
than two.per cent. per artnniu on the tax
able, valuation of property for bounty
purposes remain: The per capita tax
'will very materially lessen the burden of
bounty debts upon property, and very
justly. . , - ..
The law also provides that a bounty
not exceeding/four hundred dollars may
be paid to drafted men, or to their fami
lies in such sums and at such times as the
.local authorities may determine. By this
pitovision the. families of drafted men can
bcared for by the School Directors out!
o he bounty - funds.due to their husbands
, a rothers on who'll they are dependent,
and dissolute - , or profligate nien can be
restrained front set:tendering the money
due to their wives dr children.
.As the law - inerely confers the author
lity upon the township, ward and ,borough
authorities to pay bounties, the _matter'
rests wholly with the people themselves.
The law. is not mandatory, and any town
ship may decline to pay beauties either
to volubteers or drafted men, or they way
pay any sum from $lOO to 64.00, but i hey
cannot exceed $lOO. Under the amend
ed conscription law men must be credited
to the districts in which.they are , eurolled
and competition in bounties has there
fore ceased. Yiach district can provide
such bounty for its own citizens, both
volunteers and drafted men, as they way
•deem.just to theuiselYes and to the Sol.
(Hers; and they can now also apply the
tame rule to volunteers, .relating
payment of the bounty, that the general
law,applies to drafted men. As volun
teers cannot enlist elsewhere than in their.
own districts, the school directors of each
• locality should, as a matter of justice to'
the- families of the soldiers, reserve the;
whole or- a part of the bounty to be ap - -1
Plied 'to families where destitution is 1
probable to follow the abSence of the I
husband. It has ii it been uncommon
hitherto for men •to volunteer, receive
?]arge bounties and squander their' money ,
'before they, entered .the•service, leaving
• families behind to be a charge on the
chrity of the citizens. Under lot mer,
laws the' local authorities could not.con-1
trot bounties to volunteers, as they could
be credited Wherever 'the terms suited
them best ; but'tvidez exis ing laws, both
'State and National; Ith control of th . 3
whole matter is in the .
o thorities- of the
districts, and they can pay what sum
they,choose.to whom they choose—either

use and benefit of families either wholly
or In, part, and thus make the bounty

A Goon ExcuLnr.—A soldier of Sherman's

constantly on turkey on the march that he

The actual position of Gen.Slierman is
still matter oficonjeefure to .501143, extent
but there eanl of course be no 'doubt of
the fact, as stated. by oiir correlpondent,
that he is ::ell across the•NorthiCarolina
line, and steadily advtineing northward.
The Rebels of course know this fact, and
know something of Sherman's line of ad

reveal their weakness ;and his strength . 1

Air. Gilmer's Little Joke.
Among the l reluctant! rebels'was Mr.
Gilmer, of North Carolina. He was for
merly conspicuous in congress, and so
moderate "a Southernei" that his name
was mentiond among those of his sec
tion who might be properly invited to a
place in Mr. hincoln's cabinet four years
ago. Mr. Gilmer is a forge slevebolder,
and has been! a quiet and conservative
member of the rebel Cimgress at Rich
mond: . •
1 After the f ilure of the late'peace ne
!zoations Mit. Gilmer introduced some
resolutions into the Rebel House which,
if despair has not deranged his mind, are
intelligible only as/a cunning satire upon
-tile absurdity of the claims of the rebel:
lion. They are in the form of a. supple-
Mont to the resolutions which" declare
Ghat the reb'els will prosecute the:war.
Until they have gained their independ—
.ence, and resolve that, "notwithstanding
i2ll this, we believe the Confederate States
• 11 t the
! COniit, to. — • what noes o readcir
:ItiPpose ? They would consent, resolves
the sly Mr. Gilmer, ..that , there be a 'sep
aration between the United States ;and
the Confederate States of America, each
pc i rfectly free and independent of each
other." , .
ITChat i 3 the first thing they would con
sult to." They would farther consent
that there should he a "Diet," to which
each might send as_ many delegates-and
ini such manner as it chose. In t the
Diet there should be but two votes, one
by the Northern, the other by the South,
ern delegates, and its acts should be
bruchng upon neither party until ratified
by l unit. Finally,. the rebels would con
seut. to allow Kentucky and Missouri .to
decide by a vote of the people resident
in !those States at' the beginning of
wa!r, whether they would go withLthe
N)rth or the South.
. This is ri3 grim jesting. It is; not
difficult to imagine Mr. Gilmer, after
hearing Benjamin's speech, whicli de
clared the last , hope of the rebelliOn to
be the help of the slaves, rising) arid
suggesting with' Mephistoplielian gravity
that, Whereas the "Confederate States"
tol: up arms to secure 'their indePerid•
en r ce, and wheras,. 'after a war
years, they are rio* manifestly overcome
by the superior power of the .GeVern
.ment, and whereas they
their • independence by arts, therefore
the same "Confederate States," as.a cow..
